EBHS-YSI Workshop Promo

The Young Scholars Initiative (YSI), in collaboration with the Economic and Business History Society (EBHS) and the University of York School for Business and Society, will hold a doctoral workshop for about 8 doctoral students on Wednesday, 26 June at the University of York. The aim of this one-day workshop is to support the career and research development as well as networking of new scholars in the fields of economic and business history, broadly conceived. The workshop will include paper development presentations by doctoral students, followed by feedback and discussion with the leadership of the EBHS, as well as mentorship panels on academic publishing, the academic job-market, and career development in economic and business history.

If selected for participation, doctoral students will receive:

  • financial support for travel to and from York;
  • accommodation for Tuesday, 25 June and Wednesday, 26 June;
  • free registration and automatic paper acceptance for the EBHS conference (those already accepted to present at EBHS are also encouraged to apply).

The workshop is open to applications from doctoral students across the world undertaking a PhD in the fields of economic and business history, broadly conceived. This includes research in management, financial, labor, legal, and social history, including the history of capitalism and economic thought. The EBHS is committed to diversity and inclusion, and we especially encourage applications from doctoral students from underrepresented groups.

Applications should be received no later than 15 March, 2024. Applications will be considered by the YSI organizers and leadership of the EBHS. If you have already submitted an abstract for the EBHS Conference in York you may still apply for this doctoral workshop and are encouraged to do so. Please note that if you attended the YSI-EBHS doctoral workshops in Porto in May 2023 or Salt Lake City in May 2022, you are eligible to apply for the 2024 workshop.
